INFORMATION

RAPID NAME: Fayette Station

RAPID RATING: Class IV

RIVER SECTION: Lower New River Gorge - Cunard To Fayette Station

The final rapid of the Lower New River, Fayette Station, is comprised of a classic New River wavetrain. This class III+ rapid leaves paddlers smiling at any water level. At high water the coveted “million dollar wave” is hidden behind the horizon line left of center. At all other flows the wavetrain is right down the middle. Be careful to avoid a ledge right of center. The right bank has undercut rocks. Public river access is the concrete ramp river left.
